Banner card!

It seems banners are super popular now.... I regret not getting this Hero Arts Stamp Friendly Flags since it will be PERFECT for making banners. I was prompted by Create Blog (CARDS Challenge) to make cards with BANNERS and my card was featured here. So I used my new Spellbinders and create my own banners. First I stamped in Antique Brocade and then cut the diecut in half and strung them up like banners.
there is no one like you
It's a very simple card made with this new stamp set from Hero Arts Joy Ride. Do you like the sentiment with the image? I have some very exciting news coming up.... but I have to wait a bit longer to share. Hope you stop by some time again and find out what all the fuss is about.
.....and yes, one of them is the Hero Art blog hop!! Can't wait!
The lemons say it all :) We are so excited!
